How to make it as an Independent Artist: Episode 1

Most people wouldn't know my face if they saw it, nor would they know my name. I wouldn't expect them to have heard any of my music unless they are close friends or artists, or worst of all, one out of the hundreds of A&Rs I have sent my music to. My name is Lanre Odunlami, head producer of SRP together with my loyal production partner Wala Beats. For years we have struggled and enjoyed the complexity of being independent music producers, and now I\ve recently decided to share parts of our story through our blog.

Each week I will be sharing stories about my life as a music producer, the struggles I face, ways I generate revenue, avenues I wouldn't suggest to take, bad deals signed, and tremendous opportunities I have: that you could have as well.
